I just clip it down to a more manageable state- or else just rip it out till
it's thinned enough.  Never have a problem with it not growing back.
Actually, I find in both the tanks I have Java moss, that if I don't
occasionally prune it back, it gets rather ratty looking. After trimming, it
regrows nice and green and full-looking again.

Better to be occasionally cheated than perpetually suspicious.

It's more fun to color outside the lines.
